Having said that I dont think that Charles will be all that happy to see Harry and certianly not Meghan. But he will keep on trying to keep up some kind of relationship. He may well feel that its time Harry gave up FC as he is not using it, and has rented it out to other royals.. but now its standing empty. It woudl be better if someone is liviing in it, even though its not that easy to rent out places on a royal estate. But they may find a tenant for it or ANdrew might choose to use it instead of his bigger place

Do we know how easy or difficult it is to rent them out? I know the Canadians who owned Selfridges have had the lease on Fort Belvedere for decades (including some smaller houses at Windsor). I suspect there are plenty of people wealthy enough to lease Crown Estate properties.

Its not a matter of wealth, really so much as security. Obviously there are people who are rich enough to pay for renting a royal house, and well connected enough to be trusted in such an area.

[…]It's valid to think it's a bit weird to take FC away from them after they've duly paid for all the refurbishments themselves and that it'd be completely unbeseeming on Charles' part if they're not then reimbursed for that.

[…]Im sure that Charles and Harry will work something out, if he does give up the house, just as Im sure that Charles will reach an agreement with Andrew if HE gives up his lease.

Why would they want The Sussex's at treasured Balmoral anyway, after all they have done. Why reward them ? I wonder how many of The Family would go to Sandringham at Christmas IF the Sussex's were there ? Can you say boycott ? LOL ?

So know it appears binding ties, a house, will be lost to the Sussex's. I applaud Charles for doing this. Checkmate.
Excellent commentary and I agree - checkmate. And I thought Charles had no backbone, glad I was proved wrong.

By that logic, Harry should pay back Charles for the money “he didn’t send” during July/June of Megxit when their security expenses and other expenses were covered by Charles when they were away. It’s not weird because they hardly lived in Frogmore and aren’t coming back to stay for long. They had to pay for the refurbishments because of their bad PR. After all their mess for three years, them being paid for the refurbishments is out of the question.

Quite frankly, I believe this is exactly the right move and I applaud the King for finally taking a stand in all this. As for "evicting them" I very much doubt that's the case because evicting them would open the doors for lawyers, contract language, etc. Simply choosing, as their landlord, not to renew or extend their lease is his prerogative and his right. I suspect that they'll likely receive some funds as "repayment" for what they paid toward the refurbishment but I suspect that, in reality, this is more likely to be seen as severance money. And that's fine. If that's what it takes to end this saga once and for all then so be it. I honestly don't know if Frogmore Cottage has been offered to Andrew or if that's simply speculation building on the ongoing conversation about the costs of Royal Lodge, though it would make sense to offer it to him.

Yes, a new interview can be posted here. Just please link either directly to the interview or to a reputable source rather than say, an opinion piece about the interview from a tabloid.

This is one of my biggest issues with them, their failure (or refusal) to game out the consequences of their actions. If you're living in a grace and favour home, it should occur to you that if you show a lack of grace towards your family and fall out of favour with them, perhaps you might be asked to vacate that home. The leak to Scobie was surely intended to drum up sympathy, but for me it just reiterates how short sided and self-centered they are.

Harry and Meghan have made it very clear what they think of the monarchy, so why should they expect to keep their grace and favor residence that the monarchy provides?

This is another case of wanting to have their cake and eat it too, which is pretty much a running theme with the Sussexes.

They don't need it. Why would they need a house like that, and it's a fine beautiful home I've seen it. They have spent what at most 20 nights there this year? And most of those were because of the Queens death. This year they may spend 0 days there. They can accommodate Harry and family in other places when they stay. Or he can rent his own or buy his own. I am sire however he has been offered a smaller place to stay when he visits...or an apartment to stay in.

He doesn't need a home I'm the UK. They never visit.

He talks very easy, evidently used to chatting to people, i can see him making more tours on the talkshowcircuit in the future

Once you're over seeing Harry as royal and he doesn't feel the need to complain about others, he is really entertaining.

"Where else are you going to ride the horse?" may end up as one of Harry's great lines. He's right!

"You have a lab? That explains so much" would be funny except for what we already know about him.

(One of those England rugby players was Mike Tindall, wasn't it?)

I have to disagree on the "comfortable" part. "Call me whatever you want, I'm not leaving until we're finished" and a few other things Harry says give off the impression that he's deeply uncomfortable. He likes talking to people and hanging around people, I'm sure, but this is probably too much 'uncontrolled media + being on display' for his taste. And for what it's worth, Harry has meh taste in action movies and I think Stephen's very sound Marcus Aurelius quote/advice just flew over his head (sadly).

I can't believe he said he had dinner plans with Evie! Evie Colbert is probably more popular than Stephen... and now I'm wondering if she isn't quite literally one of us here.

I think youíre right. They werenít evicted, as much as Charles decided not to renew/extend the lease. If so- good for him. Whatever financials need to be worked, will be.

Iím not sure why theyíd care that much. Itís not like they really spend any time in the UK anyway. I suppose it was a nice perk to be able to say they still had, but thatís about it.

Personally I feel that this is more a cost saving and move the estates to a different working model than anything to hurt or deprive Harry. Charles needs to be seen to be tightening his belt and making real commitment towards his environmental pledges. I expect that a lot of the Windsor Grand park will be restored to natural state and opened to the public - but then again maybe there are plans for it to be make a larger profit anyway. Either way I think it is business not personal. And I believe that Harry will be compensated or private with something in London.
I dont believe that Andrew will be moving in. If anyone - it might be William or Edward. now that is OT.

I assume, in reference to this coronation, their daily diary photographer will be present at all times unless security stops him from entering the family areas.
Ha ... so funny ... they want privacy, and not to have every move under a microscope, then have a photographer recording every move ... you know what I want to see, I want to see them grow up.

A spokesperson for the Sussexes has confirmed the story.

Quote:
Statement from an Archewell spokeswoman tonight: “We can confirm The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been requested to vacate their residence at Frogmore Cottage.”

I think the decision makes sense. The Sussexes live in California now and only occasionally come to the UK, so there really is no need for them to extend the lease on Frogmore.
